Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
When fourth-billed Lana Turner reached the bottom of those Ziegfeldian stars to the strains of Nacio Herb Brown and Gus Kahn's lilting "You Stepped Out of a Dream" she found herself a full-fledged star. The writers, of course, had done the novice actress untold favors by creating for her the show's only full-bodied character, the one bright spot in what essentially is an overproduced bore saddled with a screenplay as hackneyed as they come and rare sub-par performances from Judy Garland (at her giddiest worst) and James Stewart. The story hardly improved with age and when it came time to film Jacqueline Susann's updated version, now whimsically called Valley of the Dolls (1967), there was no longer anyone around with Lana's special brand of manufactured glamour and the whole enterprise appeared as stale and old-fashioned as -- well, as Ziegfeld Girl.

    Garland, Turner, and Lamar

    It may not be the best musical ever made or the best movie ever made but it does star three major female actresses of that era so its something that fans of theirs would enjoy. I liked it and would recommend to people who are fans of theirs or for people who like and/or collect musicals.
